The office of the British Prime Minister has confirmed the invitation to US President Donald Trump for a state visit still stands.

The statement has been issued after a Guardian newspaper report suggested that Trump had told Prime Minister Theresa May that he doesn't want to come if there will be protests.

The newspaper cited an unnamed Downing St. aide in the room. But the White House said the two leaders had not discussed the topic. White House spokesman Sean Spicer also said the Guardian report was "false."

May's office has declined to comment. Instead, it said Queen Elizabeth II had "extended an invitation to President Trump to visit the U.K. and there is no change to those plans." No official date was ever set for the visit, though British officials have said it could be in October.
